Open Careers Events For Young People | STUK

Young people invited to free Open Events to ignite careers

October 15th, 2019

Skills Training UK is holding open careers events for young people in the West Midlands, London and Brighton areas. The events aim to give young people struggling to find work or achieve qualifications the chance to find a free course to kickstart their careers.

Our Centres in Birmingham, Walsall, Dudley, West Brom, Ealing and Brighton are opening their doors to prospective learners on Wednesday 23 October to showcase our free vocational BTEC courses and Traineeships. The events will start from 3pm until 5pm and will be free to attend for 16-24 year olds and their parents/carers.

Tutors will give tours of the Centres and discuss our programmes. Current Learners will also be available to give first-hand accounts of life at Skills Training UK, which is rated ‘Good’ by Ofsted and won Training Provider of the Year at the 2019 Times Educational Supplement (Tes) FE Awards.

Sean Atkinson, Skills Training UK Brighton Centre Manager, one of our Centre Managers who will be welcoming guests on the day, said: “As we approach October half term, some young people may be realising that traditional college or sixth form isn’t right for them. This can be for many reasons, such as struggling with their chosen course or adapting to a bigger classroom setting.

“At Skills Training UK, we offer an exciting local alternative for 16-24 year olds, including small class environments and the option to enrol all year round. We look forward to meeting local young people who want to try something new, gain employability skills, improve their confidence, and achieve practical qualifications to help kickstart their careers.”

Our Centres provide vocational BTEC, English and maths courses for 16-18s and employability-focused Traineeship programmes for 16-24s.
